    I think it would depend on the area and what kind of hunt you were looking for. For instance if you and a resident wanted to hunt region H together it would be beneficial to have the guide license so you both could hunt in the wilderness areas if you wanted to

    Thanks! Yeah I would have a tag. I think David Long said wilderness was overrated, just curious what you guys who maybe have hunted it thought. I was hoping to hunt g some year or maybe this could be an option.

    I think it would depend on the wilderness. Alot of the wilderness around YNP has been hit pretty hard by wolves and grizzlies. Others that dont have wolves and grizzlies could be great hunts. I think it would also depend on how well the resident knew the wilderness. If they knew the area and you could go along with them you would most likely have a great hunt. Most wilderness is awesome country and more then worth going even if you go home with your tag in your pocket!

    It shouldn't be a hassle, I think your cousin would just have to go to the local game and fish office and fill out a form.

    There is an immense amount of public land in Wyoming where no guide is required and you can have a great DIY hunt.

    We'd love to learn more about you and have you stick around the forum and share your hunting experiences. Would you consider starting a thread and introducing yourself?

    Thanks

    I prefer to hunt in the wilderness when time and resources allow. It can be a unique and rewarding experience, so I don't know how one could classify it as "overrated" compared to other hunts.

    "It depends" is the obvious answer to the question, but I agree with Musket Man...wilderness areas are awesome country and just being there is a large part of the experience. Find one where there are animals to your liking, and you are golden!

    Thanks! Just wasn't sure. If there would be less people in h because of wilderness or just hit g which should be about the same terrain.

    I like hearing this come from a Wyoming resident, but play pocket pool? Haha sorry I thought that was funny!
